Looks nice.

I've had good luck with Onkyo products with my customers. They like the features and sound, and for most of them, the gear is hidden (or at least behind them), so they don't mind the "million button" look on the console.

I am amazed how many similaraties in features there are between the integra and upper level onkyo stuff, yet the integra unit do have a much cleaner look, and not a million buttons like you said.

The onkyo has the cleaner look as they have a panel to hide all the buttons.

Integra 32 Buttons plus 1 knob



Onkyo 13 Buttons plus 1 Knob
Now when you flip the panel open you have 26 additional buttons :yikes:

That's a lot cleaner than many of the older Onkyo's I'm used to seeing. Very nice!

Onkyo has been doing the hidden buttons behind the front cover since the 805, 806 and up nothing new there. Its just there lower models that have them all out front.

I have not seen any power ratings thus far... other than 220 or 240 watts at 6 ohms. I assume it is about 140 watts per channel into 8 ohms.

Hello,
I have been overwhelmingly pleased with my TX-SR875 which is used as a prepro. I do like the added features of the 5007 and am contemplating upgrading. The ability to upgrade firmware over ethernet is huge. Especially considering earlier versions of the 875/905/9.8 all needed revisions to the Reon chip and Audyssey to enable the Audyssey Pro features.

Since Onkyo launched the 05 Series, I really think they have turned a corner. I initially purchased a TX-SR-805, but wanted the Reon processing and got the 875.

However, for the price, the TX-SR805 is one of the greatest value AVR's ever. Aside from subpar video processing, the 805 was ground breakng in its price range. Shame that the 806 no longer shared the same amp section as the 876/906. I was shocked that the 806 was still THX Ultra2 rated. Makes sense that the 807 is THX Select.

I also prefer the industrial design of the Onkyo's over the Integra. I like the hidden door to conceal buttons much better. I did like that the initial 05 Series were manufactured in Japan as opposed to Malaysia. Shame that all Onkyo/ Integra Stateside are now manufactured in Malaysia.

While I like Denon, I think their gear is way overpriced. To get an AVR comparable to the 5007, you would have to spend multiples of the price of the 5007.
Cheers,
JJ

How about

- Denon

- Marantz

- Yamaha

- Sony

Where are they manufactured?
Most of Denon's middle and all of Denon's upper range are manufactured in Japan. Surprisingly, Marantz's AVR's are made in China. Sony's AVR's are made in Malaysia. And only Yamaha's flagship RX-Z11 is made in Japan with the rest in Malaysia I believe.

It was honestly impressive when the 05 Series came out that the 805 onwards were built in Japan. In fact, there was a feature in UK's Home Cinema Choice where they toured Onkyo's Japanese manufacturing facility. Given the cost of Labor in Japan, I can certainly understand why these companies have moved manufacturing away from Japan. I was quite impressed that Pioneer's early BDP's, including most BDP-51 and BDP-05's were made in Japan.
Cheers,
JJ

The 9.2 - is it just 2 subwoofer outputs?

What I am getting it is - will this model be able to EQ 2 subs seperately? or will it still see only 2 subs as 1 sub?

Yes, the .2 is two subs. Probably separate from a volume perspective, might be able to change crossover and EQ settings. On that I'm not sure, though.

Onkyo really do have an impressive line up for there new AV amps, with nearly every feature you could possibly get, and price wise excellent VFM...

One of my favourite features now on AV amps is the Dolby Volume which offers excellent audio quality at low levels, somehow with this new processing it retains dynamics and tonal balance which can be lost when usually listening at low volume in late night modes on previous amps, you also get the excellent EQ Audyssey on Onkyo's, I bet these will sell by the bucket load...must try and get to listen to the new range for sure....

What is it with Onkyo and their 12v Triggers? It only works in Zone 2/3... what good is that? I noticed this new model doesn't even have a 120v AC outlet on the back. This pretty much eliminates auto turn on via remote control. What am I missing?

Yep, it was a pain having to keep turning zone 2 on, on my 905 to power up my 1575 and then the reverse to switch off :rolleyesno:

That would be especially annoying. What's the real point of that?

I have no idea... I called Onkyo and asked, but they had no clue either. :dontknow:

Such a nice receiver, but if I cannot control all my other products power with a one button push on the remote... I ain't having it my system.

At least the 876 and 906 did have an AC switched outlet on the back that could accommodate an AC/DC adapter, which is what I did with my 876 unit.
